What team are you rooting for? What sport(s) are you most eager to watch? Did you like the Opening Ceremony? Are you attending? General thoughts?

===============

For me, I am rooting for Team USA. If the USA isn't present in a match, then I'll root for the Germans, British, and Austrians, in that order.

I am most eager to watch Men's Swimming, Men's Gymnastics, Men's Rugby, and Men's and Women's Soccer.

I did like the Opening Ceremony. I expected a lot less, given all the troubles organizing the competition, so I was happily surprised. However, those troubles have reassured me that choosing not to attend was wise on my part.

Brazil. The better they do in the olympics the more it may help unify the country. I'll root for the Americans in sports they are underdogs in. Certainly not basketball or swimming but tennis and water polo I hope they do well in.

I like the athletics, that's the most fun part to watch.
I also really like to see the "usual winners" outperform all the others, like Usain Bolt, Mo Farah, Ashton Eaton, etc.
Also, good to see Russia being banned from competing in the atletics this time around.

I strongly dislike the Olympics for political reasons - especially from a libertarian perspective.

However I guess I'll root for the USA... why not? I don't really care or root for anyone.

My favorite (and really only) sport that I watch is women's volleyball lol. Preferably beach.
